In French with Eng Sub

The director, who once took part in the production of sign language educational videos, had planned to make a fiction film based on his experience. In the end, he chose to make a documentary about the world of the deaf. This documentary invites its audience into the silent world of the deaf and through its simple dialogues and visuals, it enables the audience to understand the lives of the hearing impaired.
